WTB: Z/28 DSSV Struts

Looking for a complete set of Z/28 DSSV struts, new or used. I prefer gently used. If you know someone who has a set lying around, please send me an email at: ortncpa@gmail.com
Thanks!

I did run BMR 1" drop springs for a short time on my DSSv's. The DSSV's have less compression travel than the OE, non-Z/28 struts. So using the 1" drop springs will limit your travel. And since the DSSV's are tuned for the Z/28 springs, you may give up optimum performance by changing to a different spring.

We cant call them new, but lets say the where ones that never made them in to Z/28, we got them from GM at the end of the build of 5th gen car from the plant in Canada, same as the Z/28 rimes you where looking at.

P.S. if need be i can post some pics, i have one set here for my cars, and last week found one that was leaking in my car, time to replace it.

Thanks - I would call those new! Was just wondering for price comparison to some of the take off's I thought your were new, and a great value at $1,200!

Interested that you had a leak - how many miles on the car - hard mile (track curbs etc.) or just normal use?

Nice to have spares laying around for sure!

Sorry the wheel deal didn't work out, really wish I had those.

Thx for response and have a good week!

I just replaced my drivers side rear, it was leaking pretty good. Never tracked 5600 mile 2014.

I wonder if lack of, or very limited use, can contribute to leaking?

So my car has 8k on it and all most all are track miles, 75% track 25% street.
